After meeting your ship in Puerto Caldera, there’s a short sail to the Mexican city of Manzanillo, a beach lovers paradise where you’ll have plenty of golden, sun-bathed sand stretches to relax upon, before you experience a once-in-a-lifetime journey to the ‘Land Down Under’, stopping at a string of spectacular Pacific islands en route. Glorious Hawaii beckons, with three islands awaiting discovery. Take in iconic sights such as Oahu’s Diamond Head, Hanauma Bay and the emotive Pearl Harbour Memorial; immersive yourself in the culture and beauty of Maui; and marvel the volcanic gems of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea. When your ship breaks the waters of the South Pacific, Paradise awaits you at a trio of idyllic destinations; Raiatea, Tahiti and Bora Bora boast spectacular volcanic landscapes and jungle-rich interiors to explore, and the beaches that frame each island are as unspoilt and postcard-perfect as your dreams have made you believe.

On the other side of the Pacific, experience both sides of New Zealand, feeling the energy of bustling Auckland and absorbing the tranquillity of picturesque Picton and breathtaking waterways, before it’s on to a memorable few days in Australia. You’ll be afforded time to take in Sydney’s world-famous attractions, including the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and revered Royal Botanic Garden; and visit Cairns, your gateway to the awe-inspiring Great Barrier Reef. Then in Asia, you’re set to be immersed in the fascinating contrasts of the continent. Connect with the tribal cultures of Alotau in Papua New Guinea; delight in the beauty of Bali and Phuket; and seek out the world’s largest lizards at Komodo Island. There’s also an overnight stay in Singapore, a striking modern metropolis of soaring skyscrapers, bright lights, busy commercial districts and striking temples. Finally, you’re in for an incredible Indian exploration. At Kochi, see the famous Chinese cantilever fishing nets and the British Commonwealth’s oldest synagogue, or perhaps opt for an overland tour to the iconic Taj Mahal; and savour Goa, with its charming Latin Quarter and golden beaches. Magnificent Mumbai provides a taste of old and modern India. Take chances visit the UNESCO-listed Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Railway Station, Dhobi Ghat – the world’s largest open-air laundry district – and more. You’re sure to spot busy Dabbawallas delivering lunches across the city as you explore.


Bringing the world closer

Our size advantage means we can take you to places that some of the larger cruise vessels simply can’t. We dock close to the heart of some of the world’s most beautiful cities and can take you on scenic cruising adventures showcasing inspirational landscapes. Our itineraries are expertly crafted to make the most of this advantage.

Smaller but spacious

Aboard our smaller, friendlier ships you'll find there's plenty of room to stretch out by the pool, enjoy a drink and great conversation with like-minded guests, and make the most of your time away. Sailing with hundreds, not thousands, of others allows you to get ashore faster too, and make the most of each destination.

Each member of the Fred. Olsen team has been carefully selected for their warm and welcoming personalities. The quality of our people, supported by training and development, ensures they will give you a great holiday. In fact, 97% of guests rated Fred. Olsen’s friendly, attentive staff ‘Excellent’ or ‘Good’.

Borealis, like her sister ship Bolette, has capacity for less than 1,400 guests but is larger in overall size than the other vessels in the Fred. Olsen fleet. This means when you come on board for a memorable cruise holiday, to relax and enjoy a premium level of comfort – as well as our renowned personal service – in the elegant public areas, lounges, bars and dining venues, you have even more space in which to do so.

With its warm, welcoming atmosphere and timeless style, and classic open deck spaces providing a place to fully immerse yourself in the magic of ocean cruising, Borealis is very much in keeping with what our guests have come to expect from a Fred. Olsen ship.
